A big thank you to Donna Kersten for leading the cake decorating class at the library on Saturday morning. The class members had a great time learning the fine art of rolling parchment paper to make their own cake decorating bags. Donna shared cake baking & decorating tips and taught everyone some basic frosting designs. After everyone practiced their moves, they decorated a Valentine cookie to take home with them.
